ROOSEVELT, THEODORE. Autograph Letter Signed, to unnamed recipients ('Gentleman'), explaining his efforts to obtain illustrations [for his book with Henry Cabot Lodge, Hero Tales from American History, 1895], and suggesting an image of Ulysses Grant for the frontispiece. 3 pages, 8vo, mourning stationery, written on a folded sheet, signature page written vertically; horizontal fold. (TFC) [New York, circa 1895]

Additional Details

'I have sent to Lodge to know where to get the pictures of Morris and Adams; also the suggestion about apia bay.
'I haven't an idea where to get a picture of the battle of New Orleans; but surely pictures of Andrew Jackson must be plenty.
'The Washington being the first piece, his picture might go in as the frontispiece; but perhaps the picture of Grant on horseback would be more striking.'
